I spent a couple of nights visiting a fellow Santa Barbara-to-Europe export in Hamburg. Not too many pictures from this weekend, but this should give some idea on what the conditions were like.
It was very cold, but I think the Germans are used to it because they apparently make their tools (and smartphones) out of chocolate.
I like big European train stations, and Hamburg had a huge one.
Berlin was just as snowy as Hamburg, but not quite as cold, so that just meant slushy streets and sidewalks, which is not the ideal situation for the breathable running shoes that I choose to wear on this trip for some reason. Here are a few pictures I took while sloshing around the streets of Berlin. For the record, I had a great time in Berlin and would love to come back here again, with proper foot-attire of course.
